Check this site. They have some good stuff, however, they do not really come cheaply. And they shouldn't. It's your eyes. The last thing you want to do is go cheap where your vision is concerned.

You can also try looking into WildEyes, but the site I found for them sucked, so you might want to try an alternate search method, as I know there are several sites on them out there.

With contacts and fire, be very careful. I've seen a few people develope problems with them, and costume contacts do effect your eyes/vision.
You need to wear them in short bursts to get used to wearing them. The color scheme in the iris does actually bleed over into the pupil, so you will see a "rim" of color clouding your peripheral vision, which also needs to be gotten used to. My friend has the cat ones, and once he got used to them, he said he likes them but it can be hard to see at times.
Hope this helps!

Posted:wild eyes has cheaper short-term contacts that last a month safely at AU$125. the 1 year ones are less prone to protein buildup (hard lens) cost AU$420 a pair. I needed 2 eye checkups for contacts - one for ym eyesight index, and the other (and very important) is the width of the clear zone for your pupil. too small and it affects your vison, as per Pele's mate. just the right size, and you see clearer than anything.

fuken expensive, and people remember you.
the 2 main questions i get are:
are they real?
how much do they cost?
with my auto-replies usually:
i hope not.

zoinkz!

Posted:9mmsfx.com - they have glow-in-the-dark contacts!!! : D
Me wants!! - but then, maybe i'm just taking benders post about glow in the dark toys a bit too literally.

also, i'd recommend taking a look at the possible risks associated with the use of contacts..

cheerio!

Posted:another thing - if you don't use protein removal tablets often, then the lenses last half as long! i found this out the hard way
plus if you fall into a wacky contact lense addiction, you can mix a set of, say cat and purple-blue contacts together just for that scare-the-children look.

Posted:I got my cats eyes from WildEyes.. yep I got the ring vision thing - but you get used to it.. My lenses were very expensive as I am so blind and me eyes are squishy (astigmatisms).. but they are fantastic.. the only problem is that non of my friends can actually look me in the face when I'm wearing them.. they say I look to creepy.. but I like them.. keep them clean and they will last for ages.. as people up there are saying - don't mess with your eyes.. they are the only ones you get.. I would recommend you spend as much money as possible getting your eyes tested ( you may need a persciption) and get them fitted PROPERLY.. you can do serious damage if you don't..

Do it all properly and enjoy many a funky freaky nite.. get it wrong and feel the sand in your eyes..

Tip to new contact lenses wearers... Chilli lasts a long time on your fingers and DOESN'T wash off in five mins.. trust me NOT a good idea..

Posted:Two quick things...

For those of you in the US, Wal-mart carries the Ciba "Wild Eyes" for about $40 in their eye care section at the front of the store.

Also for us Americans, The FDA is starting to crack down on novelty contacts, so if you plan on getting some for cheap, you better get them NOW! I have seen a lot of stuff about it floating around the internet news sites.

Posted:For those US-ers, Wild Eyes go for around $40 EACH LENSE. There are specials though that run them $99 per pair with an eye exam, because these need to be ordered through your optomitrist. (I spoke with the chick at the eye care center in the mall today) I think these are about the same quality as crazy eyes, with more variety and they are easier to obtain. I personally like the "hypnotica" ones myself.

Posted:just as a warning i am currently off work, spinning, university and playing out with a severe eye infection. i've had contacts since i was twelve so am very experienced with them and look after them very very well. I dread to think of the infection you could get from cheap ones.

not being able to open my eyes properly just because i didnt want to wear a tiny pair of frames seems a bit daft...

however just to completly contradict myself, i have a pair of colored ones (not the ones that caused the infeciton, we can thank vision express for that one)which are brilliant.

oh! dont forget to think about what size lense you want. best to go to an optician for a free trial to find out your perfect fit then buy some, my friend got some from the gadget shop which flapped aorund in her eyes, and spun round a second after she did.

very weird

take care all you healthy eyed people
